where republicans and democrats seem to agree that something needs to be done on tax issues or fiscal issues, where there has been an impasse for many years now. host: in terms of the principle, how detailed is the outline? are we talking about a bill taking shape or just a sketch at this point? caller: it is more of a sketch, the first step in trying to get an actual bill going. basically these are legislative goals that include four areas, one is a package, one is overhauling the existing system, another is establishing a way to ensure that there is less illegal hiring of workers, and another is to create a guest worker program. but those goals, we do not know how that will be achieved or worked out over the next few months. things are supposed to get going here as soon as next month. senator schumer and the other senators believe that they could have something by late spring, early summer. host: looking at "the san antonio news," we have this headline -- "upset republicans." what are you hearing about republicans getting things through? caller: house republicans do not seem to be o
lower. what you are seeing is a lot of investors wanting to take a profit before the capital gains taxes kicked in. you started seeing the stock sell off last september. as for today, they are choosing to get out and they are seating up. phones and tablets and the heat is coming heavier these days. >> it's about innovation here since steve jobs passed. tim cook took over and what does it say about tim cook's tenure as ceo? >> does he get the blame? sure. the buck stops with him. he's the same guy who oversaw the debut of the iphone 4s. he's the guy who stared the stock price. when kwook took over, the price doubled in the first year and his charge peaked in september. shares have tumble and there two camps and schools of thought. wall street and analysts say that they don't have the confidence that he can deliver, but this is an incredibly healthy company with $137 billion tucked away and the next four quarters show what this showed last night, maybe they will ree valuate. for now, cook should stay. >> we are just minutes away. president obama expected as we are looking live at the white
, by restoring clinton-era tax rates for the top 1% of income earners. that's what we've done so far. i think it probably is safe to say that the tax rate discussion is probably done, but we have not even begun to discuss tax loopholes. why should millionaires get more tax benefit against their charitable contributions than middle-class families do? why should a billionaire who builds a wing on a museum and puts his name on it get more tax bang for his charitable buck than the middle-class family who gives to their local church? is protecting that benefit for high-end charitable donors more important than addressing our deficit? how about tax subsidies to the most profitable companies in the world, the big oil behemoths? the american taxpayer is asked to provide money to big and often foreign oil companies. is keeping big oil lobbyists happy with subsidies from the american people more important than addressing our deficit? should companies and wealthy individuals be allowed to hide their money from the tax man in offshore accounts while working families pay their taxes fair and square? is pr
from a federal perspective is that this takeover is subsidized through tax credits that or just extended by the fiscal cliff bill, which allows investors to come into our inner-city neighborhoods and build expensive buildings, turned over and lease them to a charter boards and high rates, so charters don't have sufficient funding to even operator schools as far as operating expenses such as teachers and books and so on. i'm concerned about proliferation of charter's and what this has done to destroy neighborhoods. host: here's a comment -- coming up next, we will talk more about immigration policy. what the president had to say yesterday and what a bipartisan group of senators announced earlier this week. argos -- our guest is carlos gutierrez, now working on immigration issues as well as other things in his portfolio. later on, paul krugman, a columnist, gave us a visit. we will be right back. [video clip] >> one cannot count the times that americans say that we are the best country in the world. what a marvelously stupid thing to say. of all the countries in the world. everybo
, not to mention tax breaks that encourage companies that -- that allow companies to deduct the cost of moving their plant overseas against their federal tax, those are the kinds of things that average americans are waiting for the house of representatives to act, legislation that will make a real difference in their lives right now. i said i'm fine with the no budget, no pay act. we should pass a budget. we should move forward on that. we need to raise the debt ceiling and stop playing politics with this, but let the house of representatives get moving on the issues that affect everyday americans. that's all about jobs, that's all about this economic recovery. madam president, i suggest the absence of a quorum. the presiding officer: the clerk will call the roll. quorum call: mr. brown: madam president? the presiding officer: yes, the senator from ohio. mr. brown: i ask unanimous consent to dispense with the quorum. the presiding officer: without objection. for the senate, the letter of resignation of senator john f. kerry of massachusetts, effective friday, february 1, at 4:00 p.m. without o
press secretary blames gop for the economy while pushing higher taxes. what planet do these guys live on. great panel today. doug schoen, former pollster to president bill clinton and fox news contributor and monica crowley radio talk show host extraordinaire and welcome to you all. big shocker the number we got yesterday. >> absolutely. overall it was a big shock. following the day before, carney would mention consumer sentiment because that plunged dramatically the day before. that was maybe even a bigger shock because that speaks to the future where the gdp report was, in the past. and that was all about the payroll tax hikes. so a double-whammy this week. martha: whose fault is it? >> you can't be in the white house and only cherry-pick the good stuff. first four years it was bush's fault. martha: sure you can. every white house wants to do that. >> the fact of the matter is the economy has been slowed in part because there was been a war on success and constant threening and deemization of business. a lot of businesses have been afraid and intimidated by this. martha: no doubt about
, and this is net, after tax revenue is realized, $2.6 trillion. and that's in costs in medicare, social security, unemployment compensation, food stamps and other welfare programs. that's a foundation study. so the bottom line is, we're trying to balance the budget in washington that we'll balance in ten years but not taking into account the 2.6 trillion that it will cost by creating a pathway to citizenship and that number may increase, wolf, if we don't have our borders secured. >> one final question, because a lot of republicans are looking at the fastest growing vote, the hispanic vote across the country and republicans, at least in the last presidential election, the one before 2008, didn't do very well. they are obviously anxious to reach out to latino voters. are you saying you want to just forget about that vote? >> no. what i'm saying, wolf, is that anyone that believes that immigration or illegal immigration is the most important issue to the latino population in america is grossly mistaken. it is an issue but it's not the most important issue to latinos. listen, the people that are hu
paycheck from higher social security taxes. ouch. next, $27 billion, that's how much taxpayers are going to lose on the government bailout from 2008. that is up from an estimate just a couple months ago. and finally, 44 years. that's how long deborah ford has worked for the postal service and she never took a sick day. the 64-year-old retires tomorrow. way to go. brian? >> brian: there is new signs of life in the housing market in the united states of america. the latest data shows home prices are actually inching up. so is now the right time to sell or down size to get out of debility? joining us now from nashville is dave ramsey. dave, are you optimistic things are turning around or is this just a regional turn around? >> well, all real estate is like politics, it's always regional it's always local. so we've had some markets that weren't hit nearly as hard by the recession and they've come back. some of them almost roaring back. we've got other areas of the country, and particular cities that are really still struggling. you just got to look around you in your particular area across t

continuing his campaign for extending tax cuts, um, for everyone but the wealthy top brackets, and so we had a fiscal cliff debate and fight on capitol hill where american taxpayers across the country paying their holiday bills were anxiously waiting to see what congress would do, and ultimately everyone but the top earners saw their tax cuts restored. and we went right into a debate about gun control and immigration reform. so it's true that the president has not talked about growth or the economy in a very long time. given this new data, though, and given the fact that we saw an anticipation of these sequestered cuts that the congress passed a long time ago and have the opportunity to undo but haven't yet and are set to go into effect on march 1, in anticipation of those cuts that really hit at defense spending we saw a big shrink in defense jobs, and that is going to continue, um, when we see the sequester go into effect in march. and it's going to hit domestic programs as well. combined that will be, produce a considerable dent to consumer demand. and as we get into a couple months down
from miami. currently it is 65 degrees in miami. why aren't we in florida? why? >>brian: and no taxes, we'd have no state income taxes too. >>gretchen: okay. i'll put in my vote for florida. i'm not sure my family would be in line for that. >>brian: i'll buy the bubble wrap. let's move. >>gretchen: let's get to your headlines first. family and friends remembering the life of beloved philadelphia pediatrician melissa katunutee outside her home her body was found bound and burned, a horrible crime. police say an exterminator confessed to killing her. jason smith told police the two got into an argument during his appointment at his home. he then allegedly strangled her and set her body on fire. >> this points out that it could happen to anybody at any time. any one of us let people into our houses without doing background checks or having somebody else present. >>gretchen: that's scary. surveillance video showed that smith's truck parked nearby and it showed him following her into her house and driving by twice after the murder. he's now facing several charges in connection with that ki
not that high, we can only hope, don't want another tax. and applies to online shoppers as well. the key you want to hear, debit and prepaid cards are exempt from this. there are questions out there whether american express users will be able to avoid this. they have special language in their contract which means they may be exempt, shep. >> shepard: and these fees are illegal in some states. >> yeah, ten states, you're lucky in you live in california, colorado, connecticut, florida, kansas, maine, massachusetts, new york, oklahoma, and texas. i just want to tell people like the rooeason it's a big deal. look i'll pay cash, what's the big deal. >> shepard: if you have cash on you. >> if you have cash on you, a, and b, credit cards have protections for consumers. if you want to call up after you bought something and falls apart and you don't want to pay for it you call the credit card operator and have it expunged, you can't necessarily do that with cash and get your money back, big protections built in for people who use credit card. i'm not a fan for credit card debt, but a reason to use it
because corporate profits are up, costs are down, the fiscal cliff agreement has locked in low taxes for most of the upper-middle class and wealthy, and there's no sign of inflation as far as the eye can see. but corporate profits can't stay high when american consumers whose spending is 70% of the u.s. economy are this pessimistic about the future. they're just not going to spend. american companies won't be able to make up the difference in forward markets. europe is careening into a recession. japan is still in deep trouble. china's growth has slowed. profits are the highest share of the u.s. economy on record. wages are the lowest. but this imbalance can't and won't last. >> can't and won't. and look what's happening on wall street. they're doing better, willie, than ever before. >> mm-hmm. >> ever before. for the past four years, wall street has exploded over the past four years. real income has dropped for middle-class americans. the poverty rate's gone up. one in four americans are on food stamps. you talk about two americas. john edwards is right. >> incomes. >> over the past
before you pay any increase taxes. it doesn't make any sense. when you go into medicare, your pain to set up premiums and two sets of metadata coverage. two sets of party coverage. just for the string of monthly expenses for health care. they escalate dramatically at a time when you have probably less opportunity to increase ever come in the future. so i think we have to be very careful when we look at the beneficiary impact of changes and we need to understand what we're talking about and how it will impact people. the posturing and medicare is very high. in order to increase the cost is a difficult thing to do. all of these things go together. so i worry you can miss some of the problems that can happen. >> i can't help but draw a parallel to the commercial side where we have had for years efforts to try to get health care spending under control by dealing with the benefits side and inventing new benefits structures and care products and other things that would make individuals more price conscious and so forth. on the other hand, now we are dealing with the supplier side and payment re

differently. he supported tax increases. what does that say to you? >> two things. he joins a growing list of senators whoa are frustrated with the senate. that's a problem for all americans. not one party or another, but it has to be functional again. two, split cally speaking, it's not a safe republican state. this is what people have to keep their eye on. republicans lean as the favorites in the beginning. nothing is a sure thing even in the state of georgia. >> what do you think? you study georgia closely. >> absolutely. one of the first states i campaign in. he said it has been a really outstanding conservative member before i got to know him. as well as the united states senate. he is on the farm bills and authored most of the authorization bills. clearly his decision is personal i'm sure. he is frustrated with washington, d.c. and members of both parties are frustrated with the gridlock. the republicans will nominate somebody in main street, but while georgia is the so-called red state, president obama was able to get more than 45% of the vote there. i assume that we are going have
with their dollars that things are going to get better. now that taxes are increased, we've got to see how they're reacting to that, but up until this point, almost everything pointed to stronger consumer spending and that i take as a positive sign. >> brown: what about just filling in a little bit more on the housing sector because those numbers came out yesterday, they look good, they were interpreted as very positive. but i note that even robert shiller himself sort of suggested that he can't read all that much into them. how important is that sector? >> well, to me i think housing is critically important, not simply because of whole construction which obviously powers an awful lot of jobs but when you consider all the people who have been underwater for so long and they have this negative wealth effect, we talked about the fact that 401(k)s are going up. if they see house prices going up they feel an awful lot better as well. so i think this strength in the housing prices are really the most important factor out there and it's spread really across the country. not quite as strong as what's

reagan, you know, spoke so much about that and about taxes as well. >> well, i think that the real turning point for this president was that debt debate over the debt ceiling in july and august of 2011 and there an opportunity there and it came close, and i will not ascribe blame because there is probably enough going around when it looked like the president and john boehner were able to make a grand bargain, 3, $4 trillion in deficit reduction, it fell apart and rightly or wrongly it seems clear that the president and the white house decided at that point, we can't do business with these guys. boehner can't control the tea party element in his own house. and we're going to have to start running for president and running for president, pushing a liberal agenda. really from mid-summer, boehner says from labor day of 2011, he was very much running for president, pushing the liberal agenda. he was the protector of the middle class. and it is continued up through his re-election and now we see it in his inaugural address, very little talk about common ground. you know he basically dism
